Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The word is found in P Lille I. 3.66 (after B.C. 241–0) αἰχμαλώτοις εἰς τὴν γινομένην συ ̣[νταξιν ?] In their note the editors think that the reference is to certain prisoners brought from Asia by Philadelphus (cf. P Petr II. 29 (b).2 to some of whom a regular ";allowance"; or ";grant"; (σύνταξις) may have been made. Dittenberger’s indices show seven inscriptions in Syll and one in OGIS containing the word, all in the Hellenistic period. For the subst. see Michel 965.6 (beginning ii/B.C.) ]σωισεν ἐκ τῆς αἰχμαλωσίας.
